I m storing links in vectors and then i vist each link to find out more links

sometimes a page requires a user to enter something hence i get the below exception

java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code


How do i skip out these pages ? either by not storing them in the first place or if encoutered such a page skip it and move on to the next link in the vector

somthing like this

HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED =401;
http = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
                        
if(http.getResponseCode()== HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED )
{
      //move onto next link in vector                        
}

Exactly. You don't need to define the constant - it's already defined:

if (http.getResponseCode()== HttpURLConnection.HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED )

you need to catch the exception anyway (to handle other failure cases).

for each link
{
   try
   {
      // attempt connection
   }
   catch (Exception ex)
   {
      // error occurred
   }
}

You need to combine both techniques for proper control

not necessarily, plus there are *lots* of other response codes that also need to be handled.

a try/catch as suggested above should pick up many of them.
or perhaps just test for successful response code and treat everything else as failure.
